Is Botox safe while breastfeeding?
Botox injections could safely be performed in breast feeding patients. The injections are a local phenomena and usually have very little systemic effect in the vast majority of patients. However, the package insert/ drug information for Botox, while giving the usual "it is not known if Botox is excreted in human milk" does give off a pretty stern warning about its use in pregnancy. Therefore, because of the medical-legal risk most practioners are most likely going to advise you to stop breast feeding before a Botox treatment. Best,

Botox Safety and Breastfeeding – I do not recommend doing Botox while breastfeeding. One would run the risk of your baby having some problems if you continued using Botox while breastfeeding.
